Living the poker lifestyle has made these famous ladies slightly less rich.
Celebrities had it rough at the World Series of Poker today, as several famous women were knocked out of the Ladies no-limit Texas Hold 'em event on the first day.
That included actress Jennifer Tilly, who in 2005 became the first celebrity to win a gold bracelet at the World Series. She busted out in the first hour of the $1,000 buy-in event when she couldn't make a flush and lost to a straight.
Actress Camryn Manheim of ABC's "The Practice" and CBS's "Ghost Whisperer" was trounced from the field when her pocket kings ran into the pocket aces of Linda Johnson, a pro known as the First Lady of Poker.
Cheryl Hines of HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm," country singer Mindy McCready and actress Mimi Rogers were eliminated with the other celebrities less than five hours into 3-day tournament.
